Plazes, my favourite underhyped European web application have updated their sidebar. I like the fact that they changed the ranges shown (here, 1 km, 3 km, 10 km, 50 km). Now I can see all the way to Utrecht from Amsterdam. I also like the new “friends somewhere else” section (see the screenshot). They’ve also clustered people at the same plaze, and (all the way at the bottom) have now included a tag cloud-esque city list.
